    These over 3 month-old babies were hatched in a classroom amd we have raised. I would love guesses on breed and sex. I'm pretty sure we have 2 hens but this big white Bird keeps us guessing!

    Violet looks like a pullet. It might be that both of her parents were EE but without seeing the egg she hatched from, it's a guess.

    Those donated hatching eggs are usually barnyard mixes. If they have an EE rooster, you can see a lot of EE traits in the offspring but you'll need to see her eggs to know if the blue shell gene was passed down.

    And the dark one looks like a black australorp pullet, right? Thanks for all of your comments so far, I appreciate it! We aren't really concerned about breeds at all, just curious:)

    It looks black with a single comb but that doesn't necessarily mean it's an Australorp. Black hides all sorts of stuff. It does look like a pullet, though
